First International Bat Film Festival in New York City
This Saturday, April 30th the First International Bat Film Festival will take place in New York City. The event being held at The Explorers Club has been organized in order to raise awareness of bats, their benefits, and the troubles that they are currently experiencing, specifically the possible extinction of some species due to White-nose Syndrome.
Besides films, the all day event will feature an award ceremony to recognize the film makers who achieve best-in-class and lectures by bat experts to explain how bats benefit us, what neat technologies they possess, and the latest news on WNS and other threats to them. The day will even provide opportunities to view live bats.
